The GIP Arronax, which operates in Saint-Herblain, near Nantes (Loire-Atlantique), a very high power cyclotron, will be equipped with a second particle accelerator. It will make it possible to supply sufficient quantities to research and industry of copper-64, a radioelement increasingly used in medical imaging.

The GIP Arronax, operating the Saint-Herblain cyclotron, near Nantes (Loire-Atlantique), is launching the project for a second particle accelerator. Preliminary site development work will take place in 2023. Installation operations will begin in May 2024 for commissioning in mid-2024.
